Frontier Airlines Airlines Issues Statement on the Association of Flight Attendant Vote Results
DENVER (Mar. 31, 2000) - In response to numerous outside inquiries, Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today announced its flight attendants have voted against union representation by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA). Of 315 eligible flight attendants, 125 votes were cast for representation by AFA. A total of 158 (50 percent + 1) votes were needed to organize. This is the second time Frontier flight attendants have voted against representation by AFA. The votes were counted on Friday, March 31, 2000.
"We are pleased that the majority of our flight attendants have demonstrated that they continue to believe that an established, cooperative relationship with management is preferable to an outside middle entity," said Frontier President Sam Addoms. "We look forward to working with the flight attendant team to further build a great working environment, as well as continue providing the legendary customer service Frontier is known for."
Denver-based Frontier Airlines commenced operations on July 5, 1994. Unlike other airlines, Frontier's low fares do not have a Saturday night stay requirement. In addition, Frontier offers frequent flyer miles in Continental Airlines' OnePass® program. In 1999, Frontier was named "Best Low-Fare Carrier" by Entrepreneur Magazine in the publication's sixth annual Business Travel Awards. The airline currently serves 20 cities coast to coast with a fleet of 22 Boeing 737 jets and employs approximately 2,000 travel professionals.
